The Benefic Piano Trio, formed at the Colburn Conservatory in Los Angeles, CA in 2016, features three dedicated chamber musicians and solo prize winners coming together to channel their artistic intent with integrity and pathos, into tasteful and expressive music making. Members Sunhwa Kim, piano, Misha Vayman, violin, and Cello (Qiele) Guo, cello, have received numerous accolades, including full fellowships, residencies, and competition titles nationally and internationally. A residency at the Benefic Chamber Music Festival allows them the pleasure of teaching talented young artists, and as capable solo performers they enjoy regular engagements in recital, and with orchestra. They are currently coached by Martin Beaver, former first violin of the Tokyo String Quartet, and a member of the Montrose Trio.
